This is not the healthiest thing I’ve ever posted here at Running on Real Food, but sometimes you just really need some vegan peanut butter chocolate chip cookie dough, ya know?
My only concern with this stuff is it’s highly addictive and far too easy to make, so be careful or you may find yourself making it on the daily and that might be juuuuust a little excessive, but hey, I won’t judge…it is cookie dough after all.
No Raw Eggs, So Dig In!
Oh, and best thing about vegan peanut butter chocolate chip cookie dough, you may ask. No raw eggs!
This isn’t the cookie dough you’d sneak as a kid while your mom wasn’t looking. It’s just a few simple, friendly ingredients that taste pretty delicious when mixed together. Then again, it doesn’t take much to make chocolate chips and peanut butter taste good, does it now?
Non-Cookie Dough Related Things
I haven’t really been talking much about little ol’ me lately on the blog, so let me fill ya in on few exciting things.
First, tomorrow I’m heading to dinner with Angela from Eat Spin Run Repeat, Christina from The Athletarian, Danielle from Work It. Wear It. Eat It., Angela from Cowgirl Runs, Erin from It’s To Die For and a bunch of Vega PR peeps along with Brendan Brazier. So much fun, right?? We’re going to Heirloom Vegetarian over on 12th and Granville, which I’ve been meaning to try for ages, so I’m pretty pumped!
Upcoming Travel Adventures
The second super-duper exciting bit of news? My husband and I booked our flights to Thailand, ya! We’ll be leaving on November 21 and returning December 16. Ya, that’s right. 23 days of glorious, whatever-we-feel-like-doing travel in one of the most beautiful countries in the world (so I’ve heard!).
So, who’s been?? What were your favourites? Not so favourites? Must-sees? Tips? I’d love to hear about your experiences there.
I’m completely overwhelmed with planning because it’s so hard to narrow it down when you want to see it all! I wish we had 3 months, not 3 weeks! However, despite wanting to see as much as possible, I also don’t want to spend too much of our time in transit, so I will eventually narrow it down so we can really enjoy a few places rather than spread ourselves thin.
K, Resume Cookie Dough Chat!
Okay, that’s what’s up with me. On to what you’re really here for. Peanut butter chocolate chip COOKIE DOUGH!! Let’s do this thing 🙂
Vegan Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough
About this vegan peanut butter chocolate chip cookie dough..like, I said it’s not really a healthy treat but if craving strikes I’d rather satisfy it with a this single-serve cookie dough than go overboard with something else. That being said, it’s not particularly unhealthy, it just offer much in the way of nutrition, which is something I usually focus on at Running on Real Food.
It’s not like I’m eating a log of Pillsbury Cookie Dough…not that I’ve never done that before!! Did you ever do with your friends when you were a kid?!
It’s All About Balance, Right?
To at least improve the nutrition in this cookie dough, use a good quality, organic flour, any type should work fine really. Pure maple syrup is key, not pancake syrup. Use natural peanut butter, not a processed variety (almond butter would be delicious too!). I use Enjoy Life Chocolate Chips which are vegan and free from all major allergens and use an organic coconut oil to hold it all together and add moisture.
I also like to add a little pinch of baking soda and sea salt, I find that really enhances the cookie dough flavour!
It takes about 1 minute to make, which is a little risky since you could so easily whip up a second or third serving!Print
- Mix all ingredients together in a bowl.
Depending on how oily or dry your peanut butter is you can adjust the amount of coconut oil used. If the peanut butter is very oily, you may just need 1 tsp of coconut oil. Alternatively, if the peanut butter is very dry, use 2-3 tsp of coconut oil and if needed, a splash of water or almond milk.
